Shifting to Google Chromebook is the newest trend.Wanna know the secret behind ? [ Tips for Monday]
In fact, six of the top 20 best-selling laptops are Chromebooks.
There's a reason for this popularity. And there are plenty of reasons Chromebooks are a good choice for many businesses. Let's look at why the Chromebook belongs in companies across the globe.
1: Cost effectiveness
You'd be hard-pressed to top the price point of the Chromebook. Unless you're looking at the Pixel (which is a stunning piece of work), you'll be dropping about $210 to $380 USD for one of these devices. At the pace hardware is replaced these days, that's a welcome prospect for businesses especially for a reliable mobile device. 2: All Your Data Is In The Cloud
Aside from security, a key advantage of Chromebook’s stateless system is that nothing is saved locally instead all your apps, preferences, documents, and data are saved on Google’s servers in the cloud. In practice, this means if you are unlucky enough to lose your machine, have it stolen, or throw a cup of coffee over it, there is absolutely no risk to your information. Compare that to Windows or Macs, where unless you are diligent enough to back everything up on a weekly basis you are at risk of losing everything, and it’s easy to see why Chromebooks hold the advantage.
3: Seamless integration with Google Apps
More and more small businesses are migrating onto Google Apps, and they'll want devices that integrate into that platform with ease. That's the Chromebook. On no other platform will you find such perfect integration with Google Apps. And with Google Apps enjoying increasing success within the world of business, the Chromebook will become an essential element in Google's toolkit.
4: A Normal Laptop With Normal Functionality
Chromebooks are not some odd beast; they should be considered by anyone who is in the process of looking for a new laptop. Do you want to video chat with family and friends? It’s possible. Do you want to browse social media? It’s possible. Video editing? Word processing? Listening to music? Playing games? All possible.
Ultimately, if you’re the type of person who spends most of your time on a computer simply using a web browser, you should get a Chromebook. At their core they have a single goal: running the Chrome web browser as brilliantly as possible. Chrome runs smoothly and quickly, and is designed to seamlessly integrate with all the other features on the laptop. Don’t worry about Internet access, either.
Chromebooks really do work offline.
No other device gives you this much speed for such a low price. Because ChromeOS is a single-minded platform, it doesn't suffer from bloat like most other operating systems. A device featuring an Intel Celeron 2955U 1.4 GHz and 2 GB of RAM feels far more powerful than it should. And with a boot time of between four and 10 seconds — and instant-on from sleep — you'll lose no work to laggy machines.
By its nature, the Chromebook lends itself to an efficient experience. When you work with a Chromebook, you know what you're getting into. Although you can use the internet exactly as you would any other machine, you'll find fewer distractions than you would on a standard PC. You work, full screen (for the most part), focused on the task at hand. And because there is absolutely no learning curve, getting up to speed on the device is like hopping from one web browser to another.
7: Browser-based work
Most everything we do now is tackled through a web browser ,so much so that the software on a standard PC is slowly becoming waste. With that in mind, why would most users even need a standard PC when they can do everything they need with a web browser — and one of the best browsers on the market?
8: Apps and add-ons
If you think the Chromebook is nothing but an overhyped web browser, think again. With an ever-growing app store, there are more tools than you might expect. And as the Chromebook continues to rise in popularity, the app store will continue to expand to include increasing numbers of business-focused tools.
9: Outstanding hardware
I've compared the trackpads and keyboards of the low-end Chromebooks to those of higher-end hardware. I have to say, the Chromebooks get the nod on almost every instance — especially with the trackpads. Getting quality builds for such a low cost is a huge plus for businesses that need machines that users can use effectively. Even comparing the flagship Chromebook Pixel to a MacBook Pro with Retina, the Chromebook hardware wins, hands down.
What do you think? If you have yet to try a Chromebook, what's stopping you? If you have tried it, what did you love/hate about the device?
